The old Glenthorne Manor on Barracks Road in Belize City

Glenthorne Manor owned and operated by a very beautiful individual, Winnel Grant. Great place for interesting conversation and her very special coffee brew.

Another colonial building gone. I knew that Winnel Grant Borg had a guest house here. Tapa Grant was a judge... right opposite Gons restaurant.

I believe this is the house that the Zabanehs lived in before they moved to Dangriga. The old man Zabaneh may have passed away, but I am sure one or two of the sons are still in Dangriga. One probably own Maya Airlines.

It was used as a guest house for a while in the 1990s. Mr Nick Pollard and his family lived in that house back in the early 70s for some good years.

When I attended 6th Form (1969-71) my Peace Corp Lit. teacher & her husband, a science teacher, lived on 2nd floor; Ms. Grant lived on 3rd. floor. i use to go play on her Piano...History! and my first dog bite..oh my...

Use to work for ms.Grant as a handyman at this guess house along with James like in the 90s.

My wife was born there from 1982 they were the 4 little girls running all over that house,Mrs. Grant was like a grandmother for them.

I grew up on Hydes Lane just about 5 or so houses from the Glenthorne Manor I remember it being a two story building until the house underwent major refurbishing and a third floor being added sometime in the early 80s thereabouts

This house was located at Barrack Road across from Gon'z Panades shop. Among his legacies was, when he sentenced a mule to serve SIX MONTHS in Her Majesty's Prison. - ( The mule chewed some one's cloth hanging on the clothes line. - AND no one claimed ownership of the mule

Stayed there many times when it was a Guest House. Loved it. Such a pity, a historical house.

The Zabaney family did live there .I remember because we use to live on the same street.

I grew up next door at 23 barrack road. The Grants were the owners. It Was Once so Beautiful.

My family lived there from about 1965 to 1968. It was a beautiful home.

I grew up here in this house so many wonderful childhood is just so sad to see it like this.... up to this day i still miss Mrs grant sooo much.... i lived here from feb 16, 1983 ( the day i was born) till 1996 the year my mom moved us to cayo...

This building is no more. It's been totally demolished.

It pains my heart whenever I pass to see the state of a building which holds so many great memories for me. I stayed at that house from 1987 to about 1992 with one of the owners, Winil Grant Borg. It was a very historic building and housed the seat of the Queen of the Bay in which I sat during that period without having to vye for the title. It was also the chooses guest house for many international artists whom I had the pleasure of meeting. It was well know for it's colonial setting and continental breakfast.

I lived there when is was 14 back in '77 / '78. Spent many evenings sitting on top of the fence watching all the action on Barrack Road. Trevor C Vernon I remember playing basketball with you and your brother behind your house.
